The solar park largest in the world is currently under construction in California, will be finished within 3 years and expects to employ over 650 workers and generate an initial economic impact of $ 500 million. We are talking aboutAntelope Valley Solar Projects, to date the solar park largest in the world currently under construction.
Once completed, Antelope Valley Solar Projects will be able to produce enough clean energy to meet the needs of about 400,000 Californian homes. The largest solar park in the world has already created numerous jobs for all plant and installation works, local communities will have numerous economic benefits even after the plant has been put into operation: being a solar park very large, there will be more maintenance workers.
The company that commissioned the work is MidAmerican Solar, President Paul Caudill hopes to be able to involve professionals from the communities of Rosamond, Lancaster, Palmdale and the surrounding areas. The company responsible for the design, development and commissioning of thesolar system is SunPower.
Being a very large plant, it will not be difficult to propose solar power at competitive costs. The companies are in talks with the Californian body for the provision of electrical services, Edison.
The solar park it covers an area of 3,230 acres, entirely carpeted with solar modules very high efficiency. The solar modules are arranged on special stands that follow the sun, always guaranteeing maximum solar exposure, this strategy increases efficiency by 25 percent. L' clean energy produced will have an excellent impact on the environment and will contribute to the fight against climate change thus avoiding the emission of 775,000 tons of carbon dioxide per year. The equivalent of the pollution produced by 3 million cars.
MidAmerican Energy Holdings Company has an overall energy portfolio of 1,839 megawatts from proprietary plants, including solar, wind, geothermal and hydroelectric.
The works of Antelope Valley Solar Projects, il largest solar park in the world, should finish by the end of 2015 and with the production of 579 megawatts of energy.
Meanwhile, the Ivanpah solar plant was inaugurated on the border between California and Nevada: the largest in the world in 2014.
